“Great place to walk the dogs”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

A lovely park on the outskirts of Prince George where you can happily walk your dog and enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife (though sadly we didn't see any Black Bears!)
Like most parks in BC, it's very well maintained and kept tidy by the people who use it.

“Pleasant backwater”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

The Park is easy to get to - but only if you have a car. It consists of mature woodland and much of it is on the riverbank. It's not large, but as way of relaxing at the end of a day's drive excellent.

Look out for the faces carved into the trees - an added bonus for us was meeting the sculptor walking his dog in the park.

“Needs some love”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Just seemed uncared for. Stagnant water in the creek and lots of mosquitos... we turned around after only being on the trail for 5 minutes.

“Must see!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Beautiful open walking park. Smooth trails, huge Cotten wood trees. Bordered by both the Nechako and Fraser Rivers. Has look out points built just off the paths. Great nature walk. Dogs welcome. Great to just get out and submerge your self in the true nature. Bring your camera you will definitely want to take pictures, especially on the wooden bridge. Great all year round as well. Does occasionally flood during flood season as it is literally bordering the two rivers. All in all, I've been here many times and will be back with out a doubt.

“Good dog walk”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

Great place to take the dogs. City plows the snow so it's a nice walk even in the winter.
There is also a nice wood bridge that locals take wedding pictures at so bring your camera.
